Halloween is one of those ‘holidays’ I haven’t really embraced.
I have however come to enjoy the many crafts and creative costumes
people come up with (so long as they’re not too creepy or bloody).
I had a lot of fun creating this particular project and it’s so very simple
to make. I am actually looking for excuses to make more of these trays.
All you need is:
An inexpensive tray (this one is from Dollarama, the Canadian Dollar Store)
Epoxy Resin (available at any craft or art store)
Some ants or spiders
I simply glued the ants in place with hot glue, followed the package
instructions for the epoxy resin and carefully poured it over the ants.
You then allow it to dry for 48-72 hrs and you’re done.
I love how the ants look like they’re about to carry away the cookies.
The best part is, that epoxy is food safe once it’s dry.
Wash by hand with soap and warm water prior to contact with food.
And here’s another fun little idea…
How about gluing some crawly ants up the straws?
Just make sure the ants are low enough down the straw.
I do not recommend giving these straws to children under 3, unless
you are closely monitoring them and you know they won’t be eating
the plastic ants ;). I know this is obvious stuff, but you know…
So there you go, super easy and in my opinion, super adorable.
That’s my kinda Halloween! 🙂
And what about these amazing Halloween ideas from a few of my pals?
